Paradise of submission : a medieval treatise on Ismaili thought by Naṣīr al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Ṭūsī( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paradise of Submission (Rawda-yi taslim), is Tusi's most important and comprehensive Ismaili work. It consists of 27 chapters called tasawwurat (meaning 'reflections' or 'representations') on a variety of themes such as the Creator and the cosmos, the nature of human existence, ethics and human relations, religion, eschatology, prophethood and imamate. Additionally, there are chapters on the varieties of human knowledge, the nature of language, different forms of worship, and the soul's progression from corporeality to spirituality." "The significance of this treatise arises not only from its comprehensive treatment of medieval Ismaili thought, with its characteristic synthesis of theology, philosophy and esotericism, but also from its unique status as the only major doctrinal work of the early Nizari Ismailis to have survived the Mongol invasions of Iran in the 7th/13th century." "This new Persian edition and complete English translation of the Rawda-yi taslim has been prepared by S.J. Badakhchani on the basis of several known as well as recently discovered manuscripts of the text, and accompanied with an introductory essay by Hermann Landolt and a philosophical commentary by Christian Jambet."--Jacket
Spiritual resurrection in Shi'i Islam : an early Ismaili treatise on the Doctrine of Qiyamat by Ḥasan Maḥmūd Kātib( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the few surviving Nizari Ismaili texts from the Alamut period, the Haft bab (Seven Chapters), which outlines the basic tenets of Ismaili philosophical theology, has proved to be the most popular. One of its many attractive features is its simple recounting of the most complicated Ismaili theological narratives, including the doctrine of the Resurrection (qiyamat). Produced around the year 1203, this small treatise was probably intended as an introduction to the Diwan-i Qa'imiyyat compiled by Hasan-i Mahmud-i Katib (d. after 1242). For many years, the Haft bab was misattributed to Baba Sayyidna (Hasan-i Sabbah), but the true author has finally been identified as Hasan-i Mahmud-i Katib, whose works continue to shape our understanding of this important period.The current text of the Haft bab, edited and translated into English by S. J. Badakhchani, is based on Badakhchani's analysis of a great number of manuscripts available, including a complete and unaltered version. The concepts found in the text derive largely from the intellectual heritage of the Fatimids. These include the idea of tanzih (the absolute transcendence of God beyond human understanding and knowledge); a cyclical conception of prophetic history, consisting of seven eras (dawr); the Ismaili Imamate as the most important pillar of Ismaili Islam; and the Qiyamat as the completion and perfection of the religious law (shari'at)

Contemplation and action : the spiritual autobiography of a Muslim scholar by Naṣīr al-Dīn Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Ṭūsī( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in Persian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nasir al-Din al-Tusi, the 13th-century Shi'i philosopher and scholar, is one of the most controversial Muslim personalities of his time. His contributions to different fields of learning, including astronomy, theology and philosophy, won for him the honorific titles of scholar ("Muhaqiq") and the "Eleventh Intellect". In Isma'ili circles he was held in the highest esteem and addressed as "Da'i al-du'at wa khwaja-i ka'inat", chief propagandist and master of creation. This is al-Tusi's spiritual autobiography. Although it is not traditionally listed in his writings, contemporary scholars have no doubts about its authenticity. In it, al-Tusi recounts his spiritual attraction and conversion to Isma'ilism. The work of and inquisitive and highly intelligent mind, the importance of this document lies not only in al-Tusi's account of his spiritual journey but also in his clear and vivid elaboration of the Shi'i Isma'ili doctrine of "ta'lim", or the need for authoritative teaching by the Isma'ili imam
